April 28, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today we read one chapter in the Acts of the Apostles and two chapters in 1 Samuel.

April 28: Acts 9, 1 Samuel 18, 1 Samuel 19 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Acts 9. On the road to Damascus Saul was Converted.  Ananias met up with Saul and from that time on Saul preached Christ. The Jews decided to kill Saul, but he escaped at night by being lowered out  through a window, hidden in a basket. Saul then went to Jerusalem. The believers were at first suspicious of him, but Barnabas told what had happened to Saul, and accepting Saul’s conversion the Church Prospered. Later Saul healed the paralytic Aeneas, and in Joppa a woman named Tabitha (or Dorcas) died. The believers immediately called for Peter, and he uttered the words “Tabitha cumi” and she rose up again.

1 Samuel 18. Saul began to resent David, and no wonder, women started chanting “Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.Saul’s daughter Michal fell in love with David, and Saul let them marry after a rather unusual dowry, but he became more and more suspicious and afraid of David.

In 1 Samuel 19 the paranoia is fully developed, and Saul persecuted David, trying to kill him over and over again.
